Passover Seder UES

Friday, April 3, 6:30pm


Of all the Jewish holidays, Passover is the most widely celebrated among ex-Soviet Jews. Why? Because "Let My People Go!" is a cry from our own generation, and the story of the Exodus underscores the connection between Jewish tradition and our personal experience.

This year RJeneration is proud to host its annual Passover Seder - bringing together a community of young Russian-Jewish singles, couples, and young families, for a night that is truly "different from all other nights". 

Note: Seats are limited and registration 

Join Us For This Cornerstone Celebration Of Our Heritage! We look forward to breaking (unleavened) bread with you all!

When: Friday, April 3, 6:30pm

Where: Upper East Side. Exact address will be made available to registered guests only.

Cost: $55/adult (kids 4-13y; $25; kids 0-4y - free )

About RJeneration
Born in the Soviet Union -- made in America

We came to America as kids and teens, brought by our parents. Some were born enroute, and some were born here. We are a generation of Americans with a second culture and language, a Russian heritage, Jewish roots, and a defining immigrant experience. We've juggled our "hybrid" Russian-Jewish-American identity throughout our lives.

Many of us went to the top high schools and colleges in the country. English is our primary language, but we still speak Russian. Runglish is also our style. We're Jewish, despite yeshiva traumas. We're in our 20's and 30's, busy building successful careers in every imaginable field. Some of us are already household names - Sergey Brin, Gary Shteyngart, David Bezmozgis, Lenny Krayzelberg, Mila Kunis, Regina Spektor. Many others are sure to follow and make their mark.

The RJeneration community brings us together to network, make connections, explore the richness of our unique Russian-Jewish-American identity, showcase and celebrate RJeneration's rising stars, and engage in Russian and Jewish life all around us.
